The Reload: In-State Standout Sets Commitment Date, OSU Offers 2018 Tight End



The Reload is PFB’s recruiting recap catching you up to speed with the latest Oklahoma State recruiting news, with an ear to the ground for what to expect.

OKC-area safety Jason Taylor sets commitment Friday

In-state standout Jason Taylor – a Carl Albert High School 2018 prospect – will make his college decision on Friday, August 4. The 6-1 recruit will pick between OSU, Tulsa and SMU.

With OSU missing on Delrick Abrams and Israel Mukuamu at safety on the recruiting trail of late, Taylor is must-land for OSU – especially considering the level of competition. The coaching staff has been in on him since early in the spring, and I believe he is OSU’s to lose at this point.

OSU has two commitments at the safety position in the Class of 2018 in Jarrick Bernard and Kanion Williams, so adding a third standout in Taylor would be huge in potentially addressing the position as far as recruiting before the football season begins.

Prediction: OSU

Texas High receiver decommits, eyes Friday commitment

Wide receiver Tevailance Hunt opened up his recruitment this week after a several month-long pledge to the Kansas Jayhawks. The Texas native pledged early in the process but picked up plenty of interest this spring and summer, and is now open – but only for a short while. He, too, is planning to commit on Friday.

While OSU is at the top of his list in terms of new offers since committing, it is believed that TCU – the school that offered him a week before his decommitment – is the favorite to land his services.

OSU has two commitments at receiver in the 2018 class in C.J. Moore and Jonathan Shepherd, and the coaching staff is plenty content with where they’re at now. In fact, they’ve cooled significantly on Hunt, so I’d say a commitment to the Pokes would be a long shot.

Prediction: TCU

Bobby Brown planning November commitment

Four-star defensive tackle Bobby Brown has set a November commitment date and will be choosing between OU, Alabama, Texas A&M, Baylor, Texas, Florida State and Oklahoma State.

Brown was offered by OSU on his unofficial visit to Stillwater last weekend, but has been on OSU’s radar for some time.

While the competition is obviously stiff, I think OSU has a decent shot to remain in the thick of his recruitment until the end if only because depth will essentially be a non-factor. OSU has yet to land a commitment at the position in the 2018 class, and after missing out on John Bolding, things look grim with junior college standout Tayland Humphrey. The same can be said for Millwood High School’s Israel Antwine after the Texas Longhorns jumped in the mix for him earlier this week.

It’s too early to make a prediction, but I think Texas A&M is the ultimate landing spot.

2018 tight end Glenn Beal offered

Just two weeks after losing the commitment of tight end Nic McTear, OSU has moved on and offered a new 2018 prospect in Glenn Beal.

The New Orleans native from John Curtis High has a dozen offers that include the likes of LSU, Alabama, Ole Miss, Texas and others.

I love that OSU is chasing big fish in recruiting, but this one might be a reach. I don’t see the Pokes pulling a Louisiana (New Orleans) native out of The Boot and out of the clutches of LSU territory.

Cornerback Tamauzia Brown offered

6-foot Newton, Texas cornerback Tamauzia Brown has offer No. 1 in the bag, and it’s from Oklahoma State.

The Cowboys pulled the trigger on Wednesday for the rising prospect who has already achieved a four-star rating by 247Sports, but is unranked by the 247Sports composite rankings.

In 2016, Brown was the District 10-3A-II Co-MVP as a sophomore. He played a number of different positions, including cornerback and running back. He rushed for 578 yards, logged 8 rushing touchdowns and also recorded 430 receiving yards and 5 touchdowns through the air as a sophomore at Newton.
